surrounding manhattan are still flooded and almost half of the island is still without power so trains are running in sections. that means they are running in places but does mean you sometimes get where you need to go and sometimes you just get part of the way there. the outer boroughs getting into manhattan often means getting off the subway and getting on to buses that travel on to the island by bridge. this is what the lines for the buses looked like around 10:45 this morning well after the height of the morning rush. however tough and resilient new yorkers are, and they are, there's not a single new yorker anywhere who is hoping that this is the new normal. joining us now is the governor of new york state, andrew cuomo. governor cuomo, thank you very much for taking the time to join us tonight. i know it's a sacrifice for you. >> no, it's my pleasure to be with you. >> i understand you just got off the phone with president obama. can i ask what you two are discussing and how the coordination is going? >> i'll give you three guesses, rachel. he wanted an update on the storm and he

to manhattan, just started run. there are still no trains running from low 34th street where half of manhattan remains this morning in the dark. so the millions of new yorkers who depend on subways are now waiting, as you can see in these pictures, in long lines for city buses. for those who drive into the new york city area, the lines stretched for miles yesterday. enough to make you turn around and stay home. in an effort to ease gridlock in the city, the mayor has ordered all vehicles entering manhattan must have at least three passengers. that stands for the rest of the week. there are check points set up on the way into the city with cars not meeting the three-person rule being turned away. and you're only beginning to make your way to new york, if you're lucky, to find gas or cars. about 80% of new jersey stations are either without power or without fuel. those that do have gas are facing nearly impossible demand. both new jersey senators now asking president obama and the federal government for emergency fuel supply. today, secretary of homeland security janet napolitano is expected to
, which got hit harder than anybody. the state of flork, particularly lower manhattan and long island. we're very concerned about some situations in connecticut as well, and we're still monitoring west virginia where there are heavy snows in some inaccessible areas. those areas are bearing the brunt of this storm. we have been able to stage commodities, water, power generators, ambulances in some cases, food, medical supplies, emergency supplies, and over 2,000 personnel on the ground right now. their job now that we're moving out of the search and rescue faze, is that they're going out and talking to individual communities to they know how to get the help they need. >> the governor spent the rest of the day doing storm response with president obama. as you can see, this is a shoreline district fronting the new york harbor. i know this has been a difficult past couple days, what kind of damage are you seeing in your district? >> it's all kinds of damage. i mentioned union beach to you. three or four blocks from the bay, the storm surge came in and the waves were pounding on top of the hou
directly across the hudson river from manhattan. it is small, but it's got 50,000 people in it. you can see hoboken clearly from the west side of new york city. and as of last night, the mayor told us, there were as many as 20,000 people, of the population 50,000 people in the city, there were as many as 20,000 people still stranded in deep, impassable, and increasingly polluted floodwaters. the national guard did get to some of those people, starting late last night and into today. we'll have more about that very dramatic situation in just a moment. the national guard also arrived this morning in moonachie, new jersey, where the storm surge swamped the town very, very quickly. people in all sorts of housing in moonachie were caught unaware and trapped, but particularly folks in mobile homes had a very difficult time there. members of the national guard also rushed to the assistance today of new york city' bellevue hospital, which has been running on generators ever since the lower half of manhattan lost power monday night, when sandy came ashore. 17 million gallons of water flooded bellevu
the shortages are ridiculous. >> yi, -- yeah, shep, this on the far west side of midtown manhattan is one of the few gas stations that is still open anywhere in the city. you can see the tanker there, that is the third time it has been here today since we have been here for the last 8 hours or so to actually fill up. so people keep coming. and take a look ought his or her at the lines. people have been waiting in line, one and a half, two hours all day. new york's finest nypd here to keep order because as you can imagine in these situations where they are waiting block after block after block of this avenue in new york, tempers do sometimes flair. but mayor bloomberg said today that relief is on the way. listen. some the gas stations aren't open because they don't have electricity. and the pumps need electricity to run. that hopefully in the next couple of days will be accommodated and once mass transit comes back, you have a lot fewer cars trying to buy gasoline. >> among these we saw filling up here today was some of the new york firefighters who are doing their very best to help the ma
